Re: Loss of my Father
rajeena I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad, and so unexpectedly. I lost my dad 12 years ago, and I was 41 at the time, and it doesn't matter how old you are....it hurts to lose your dad, at any age. One thing that helped me was to make a list, actually write down memories of my dad. It sounds goofy but I didn't want to forget either. They were just random things like how he taught me to ride a bike without training wheels, how he taught me to bowl and keep score, and the pecan roll we would get after bowling every sunday. Shooting marbles, walking the dog together, etc. How he cheered me on when I took ice skating lessons and he would be by the side of the ring, saying "shoot the duck", one of the moves I was practicing at the time. The more things I wrote down, the more I would remember.....stuff that I had forgotten. Tears were streaming as I did it, but it felt good....and it's something we just have to do.....cry, let it out, and remember the good things. I'm so sorry again for your loss.
